Cubs continue to promise better days ahead

CHICAGO — Chairman Tom Ricketts insists there will be a day when results replace promises and the headlines center on victories for the Chicago Cubs.

It's just not here yet.

Ricketts says they "can't take shortcuts" and that there's "no way to cheat the devil on this."

The Cubs continue to pitch their long-term vision rather than short-term results, insisting this pain will result in a payoff down the road. They point to top prospects such as Javier Baez, Jorge Soler and Kris Bryant. They mention new training facilities in the Dominican Republic and in Mesa, Arizona, and the planned renovations to Wrigley Field.

And it was no different when members of the Ricketts family and the front office fielded questions from fans at the Cubs convention Saturday.
